The Japanese musician broke up the minimalist boys’ clubs with her cult album Through the Looking Glass. Ahead of its reissue, she recalls trying to make ‘impossible’ music and playing songs on a Coca-Cola bottle.

That is why I named this album Through The Looking Glass. The reflection on the mirror seems to show something, but I did not want to indulge in that. I wanted rather to force discernment of my true self that was beyond the reflection. That Accelerando is thhe most aggressive progression on the album. As the tempo gradually increases, the piano and reed organ slowly build a wall of sound. The acceleration directs the listener's attention inward, towards the music itself, as opposed to its performance.
Through The Looking Glass is from a Japanese lady percussionist Midori Takada. the 2017 CD reissue of the long OOP Through the Looking Glass by Midori Takada is a stunning mix of experimental music that mixes sounds from world music, ambient and Philip Glass like repetitiveness into a one of a kind delight. Rarely anymore(happened for me much more in the 90s) do I hear something that is not very similar to many other bands or clearly a knockoff of best seller type artist.
Friday, March 2, 2018. Midori Takada - 1983 - Through The Looking Glass. Midori Takada 1983 Through The Looking Glass. There’s something about Takada and the joy of creating this album that fully emerges in this last quarter-hour, as she builds energy up with her drums, her harmonium and that ever-present cowbell. In the liner notes to this reissue, Takada explained just what she learned in her studies of African and Asian music that led her to abandoned Western classical music as a pursuit way back when.
Midori Takada’s debut Through The Looking Glass is an album that shrugs off description, flitting on dream logic like a hummingbird through a garden. I’m still not sure I can capture what makes this album special, but I’m happy to try and convince everyone to listen. The quickest way to state the appeal for myself is this: the album sits at the perfect crossroads between my love of modern classical music and Japanese surrealism. There’s a lot more to it, though. Midori Takada debuted in 1974 with the Berlin Philharmonic after graduating from Tokyo University of the Arts, growing her career through solo concerts both in Japan and abroad. She eventually released two solo albums; long after Through The Looking Glass came Tree Of Life, in 1999. The massive gap was filled with constant work both as a solo artist and as a composer and performer in live theater.
